Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover
Spencer Krug lead vocalist of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown will be releasing Random Spirit Lover. As a big fan of Shut Up I Am Dreaming, Random Spirit Lover should be a solid release. P4k gave it a very favorable review.
Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala
9.0 by P4k, wow. Swedish singer Jens' vocals echo the old English. See Belle & Sebastian; Morrissey of The Smiths. See also: David Byrne of Talking Heads. Many of his songs have an orchestral feel packed with flutes, cellos and the like, almost a big band sound. Kind of cheesy, but at the same time it somehow is very enjoyable. Grab it at eMusic tomorrow.

Beirut - The Flying Club Cupp
Zach Condon of Beirut also brings a worldly sound to the table. Packed with horns and accordions, TFCC will be yet another mood album-one you will have to be in the mood for. I have enjoyed popping in Gulag Orkestar on occasions.
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Although I would not join in the Koolade drinking for Radiohead, I do somewhat dig their music. This release is certainly an interesting story. See full details HERE. To sum it up, Radiohead is releases a digital download release Wednesday for whatever you want to pay. I will certainly download it.
Also released this week:
Fiery Furnaces - Widow City
Robert Pollard - Coast to Coast Carpet of Love
Robert Pollard - Standard Gargoyle Decisions
The Ravonettes - Lust Lust Lust
